A key to relieving constipation is provided by the link between progesterone and constipation through the action of water retention. Constipation is almost always caused by poor nutrition and a lack of dietary fibre. One other cause is too little water in the gut. Hormone imbalances induced by environmental poisons, especially the xeno-estrogens, may be at the root of the problem.
Progesterone, because of its ability to reduce water retention, can cure the condition. It is essential to maintain adequate blood levels of this hormone.
Any dietary recommendation should include adequate amounts of fibre especially of the soluble sort such as the pectins found in apples and citurs fruits. Avoid artificial diuretics.
